Re: Foil front loop tutorials

Toby, did you get in to foiling? Love the motivation talk, but I think there is more at stake here comparing to regular TT business... you are definitely more likely to hurt your ankles doing this stuff on HF and more likely to hurt yourself landing on a wing or a mast. I had my 4mm suit cut on my b...

Re: Hydrofoil Big Air

- if I am under-powered I try to go fast and the foil starts "boiling", becomes unstable and ejects me when I send the kite.. I tried 3 sets of wings, sanding wings/mast, etc but it's still there.. maybe it's my technique? it looks like your technique issue and if whisper wings are shape of the Mos...

Re: 30+m breach??

I just linked a basic video to show drift. Yes you can absolutely do some sort of filtering (Kalman filtering) to reduce drift but you have to know the approximate profile of the motion or use another sensor (sensor fusion) to essentially do a weighted average for a better estimate. 3D foot trackin...

Re: Hydrofoil Big Air

I can routinely hit 10meters on ghost whisper FR wing and 12m CORE xr5... My problem getting more height is as follows: - if I am under-powered I try to go fast and the foil starts "boiling", becomes unstable and ejects me when I send the kite.. I tried 3 sets of wings, sanding wings/mast, etc but i...

Re: Nassau

Re: Quiver Simplicity

If I had to pick one kite, I'd pick 9m and it would cover me from 9 to 30 kts easy (I'd still need two boards: TT and HF) But every kite/size has a sweet spot, which is just 3-4kts of wind range and one does not need to be a pro to appreciate it. I am pretty happy with 2 boards and 4 kites 7-9-12-17...
